The Fight Nerd prepares for his very first live event, The Fight Nerd Video Game Open: Fall Brawl! Start getting your thumbs ready for our UFC Undisputed 2010 tournament, with two weight classes to compete in (heavyweight and welterweight) and a pile of prizes from Jakks Pacific, Round 5, No Surrender Fight Wear, M-1 Global, King of the Cage, Topps, Skin Industries and more! Don’t you wish you lived in NYC?
A full list of prizes is coming soon, but I can tell you now it’s two big garbage bags full of MMA stuff and more is on its way! More news about prizes, competitors and special guests (hmm…) will be announced as we get closer to the show! Hit the jump for all the rules and details on location!
Come watch or compete on October 16, starting at 12 noon, at:
